Expert patients


If you have a long-term health condition, you might be interested in the Expert Patients Programme.


What is it?

The Expert Patients Programme is a free (NHS-funded) training programme that provides opportunities to people who live with long-term health conditions to develop new skills to manage their condition better on a day-to-day basis.


Benefits of becoming an expert patient

Expert patients:

  • feel confident and in control of their lives;
  • aim to manage their condition and its treatment in partnership with health care professionals;
  • communicate effectively with professionals and are willing to share responsibility on treatment;
  • are realistic about the impact of their disease on themselves and their family;
  • use their skills and knowledge to lead full lives.
